To me, blush in its primary function is to accentuate something possible. Whether it’s to simulate a healthy glow, rosy cheeks or the exaltation, blush is some kind of happiness in a box.
I’ve never had rosy cheeks. Not after a good sleep night nor after a race behind a bus, not even when I’m intimidated. Due to my complexion, my healthy glow manifests itself more broadly. I’m having a narrower pore, a fresher eye, but fire on my cheeks? Never!
I relegated to the closet reds, magentas, the iridescent shiny stuffs. I keep them for special occasions. It does not correspond to a possible reality for me. It does not emphasize anything; it invents any part of it. In itself, it might not be a problem, but to me, blush is not really about that. And I feel that even by blending the color to the maximum, there’s still something dissonant which clashes with the rest.
On the picture, my favorite blushes, because they all correspond to a sample of something naturally occurring on my skin. Purple in affinity with the shadows on my face, ocher to keep me warm and orange to brighten the gloomy mornings.
